Today we celebrate:

Innovation Day – Today is a day to think outside the box. Find a problem, brainstorm possible solutions, be creative, pick one and implement. This is innovation.

National Almond Day – Almonds are a powerful food. One serving gives you 35% of your Vitamin E for the day and will help to lower your cholesterol. They also contain good amounts of protein and other important nutrients and can even help you with asthma and other lung problems.

Kyoto Protocol Day – Countries that signed and ratified this protocol from the UN are required to limit or reduce their emissions of four greenhouse gases. It was adopted in 1997 and put into practice on this day in 2005. The US signed but did not ratify the protocol and Canada backed out in 2012. Many complain that the protocol doesn't go far enough and has no ability to make sure that member countries follow through with their promises to reduce their emissions.

Do A Grouch A Favor Day – It isn't usually too difficult to find a grouch around somewhere. Sometimes in your very own house. There might even be one hiding in your own shoes. But since all of my readers are generally very cheerful people, you might have to work to search one out. When you find one, do something nice for him/her and see if you can de-grouchify him/her and reduce the number of grouchy people out there by one...or two...or even more. Make it a mission today and we'll see how many times we can convert a frown to a smile.

To celebrate today, put your innovation skills to work on the problem of reducing emissions in this country. Then find a grouch and share your almonds with him/her.
